WV Becoming an Outdoors-Woman Program plans Spring Workshop

            SOUTH CHARLESTON, W.Va. – The West Virginia Division of Natural Resources announces that the spring Becoming an Outdoors-Woman Workshop at North Bend State Park will be April 19-21, 2013.   

            Have you ever wanted to learn a new skill but have never had the opportunity to try?  Or, have you wanted to take up an outdoor sport but were afraid to purchase all the equipment and then find out later that you hated it?  Then the West Virginia Becoming an Outdoors-Woman (WV BOW) Program is definitely for you!  Women who are at least 18 years old can learn a new outdoor skill.

            This spring, the BOW workshop will offer outdoor classes that include archery, biking, shooting, camping, fly tying, fishing, self-defense and outdoor cooking, to list a few. 

            Registration is now open with a fee of $150 which covers lodging, some meals, and some class materials during the workshop.  For more information or to register for the workshop, please contact WV BOW at 304-558-2771 or billie.j.shearer@wv.gov.
